Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread

Were those taken from a helicopter or plane?

 

Commercial plane. Just happened to be in the right spot on descent into Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) where I was changing planes. I have one more I'll post later tonight from my way back to Ohio a few days later, but it's totally shrouded in fog and will be worth more of a laugh than anything else . Glad the pictures were of some value here!

Hotel booked

Season passes purchased

Can't wait!

 

So I read about a few other things maybe you guys can clarify...

 

Offsite parking that runs about $5-$10? I read some are a longer walk some a closer walk?

 

Park opening around 30 min early to keep the incoming crowds flowing?

(I plan on making good timing regardless but this would be great)

There are some paid parking lots (including the Wingate Hotel which has some dedicated paid parking) on the first road to your right as you go under the interstate. I think it is called S. Service Road or something like that. Basically, you head towards the Wingate and the parking lots are on both sides. Obviously, the further down that road you go, the further you will have to walk.

 

We stayed at the Wingate before and it is actually a quicker walk to the front gate than the regular parking due to the location of the entrance.

Your information on the offsite parking is correct. The Wingate has is for $10 for all day and if you go just to the next hotel past the Wingate, the Howard Johnson has parking for $5 for the whole day as well and it is basically the same distance from the park as the Wingate. (hlaf the price for almost literally the same lot) It's only a 5 minute walk, max. That's what we do whenever we go because $30 or whatever they charge for parking is insane. If you park at the hotel, I would say it is actually about the same walking distance as if you parked your car in the regular Six Flags lot, that's just how close it is.

 

As for the park opening early, I haven't heard anything, ever, of the park opening early to better control the crowds. If you heard somewhere else, I would actually be interested in seeing that source because that's something I might want to do sometime. Or I would at least want to know to get there 30 minutes early.

if you have the gold season pass, one of the perks listed for this year is early access to the park. i contacted them to find out what that means and they said they woudl allow gold pass holders in 10 minutes before general opening. So if somebody was talking about letting people in early that MIGHT me what they were talking about but it isn't to control crowds, but just a perk for the higher level season pass.

Have they done anything like this in the past-I've never heard I then doing anything like this.

The park will generally open the front gates 15-20 minutes prior to posted opening time. Guests would be allowed in the Promenade, British and Georgia Sections at this time, with the rest of the park being accessible at the posted opening.

It is a new perk this year. In fact, I think the gold pass itself is new this year.

 

From the national site. The VIP entry is the early entry provision.

 

Introducing the Gold Pass

Most Six Flags parks have just launched the new GOLD PASS which includes FREE free parking with every pass, good at all Six Flags Theme Parks. You'll also get VIP entry into the park and an extra Bring-A-Friend Free ticket.

Does anyone know if this is going on at any other Six Flags parks too?

All of them, if I'm not mistaken.

it is just about all of them, if not all of them. I got the gold pass for the free parking (which can add up over a season) but the 10 minutes early entry is a petty nice additional perk. I will definitely take advantage of that next Saturday.
